W8R1,2 and 3 were done in the park, and in the Gloucestershire cull zone last week.
They were a bit of a comedy of errors as the first one had to be done by my watch as I still had the week 7 podcast on my MP3, the second one we ended up only running 18 minutes instead of 28 because despite the fact that the podcast started by welcoming us to week 8 it somehow segued into the podcast for another week (week 6?) and we ended up coming home early a bit confused. The third run of the week was done along the pavements where I was staying in Gloucestershire. I used Strava for the first time and it was fun to see the little map of my meandering run and see the breakdown of my times per mile. A mile in 12 minutes seems quite slow- not much over walking pace..? But Laura keeps saying that speed is not what this is about, so..
An old ankle injury has been bothering me this last week so I was taking it fairly steady and today I wasn't sure what to do but tried our new treadmill and managed to do 30 minutes (W9R1) without any problems; I think having the handle things mean that I was probably taking a bit of pressure off my ankle which seemed none the worse for it.
I got quite hot as I wasn't wearing my running stuff, was wearing jeans as hadn't been planning to run, but I was able to speed up a lot at the end, much more than I usually do, which surprised me but I did feel that the treadmill was easier than running outside tho I'm not sure why.
